The Beehive State
Utah is a place where cities, mountains, rivers and cultures converge. With five national parks (Arches/Canyonlands/Capitol Reef/ Zion/Bryce Canyon), 43 state parks, six national forests, seven national monuments, 14 ski areas, deserts and mountains, Utah’s scenic and recreational opportunities are unlimited. From the red rocks of Southern Utah’s national parks to the Greatest Snow on Earth®, Utah offers world class outdoor adventures with award-winning performing arts, gourmet restaurants and accommodations to meet all needs. Salt Lake City won hearts and minds hosting the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Utah’s resorts continue to bring home the gold. Deer Valley Resort has been rated the #1 resort in North America by SKI Magazine for five consecutive years. Whether you are based in the ski town of Park City, historic Ogden or downtown Salt Lake City, on snow time is complemented by a variety of après ski options.
Culture seekers will enjoy Utah’s spectacular new Natural History Museum, the art galleries, ballet, symphony and museums. Shoppers will love the bargains to be found at the Park City Tanger Outlet Mall. Downtown Salt Lake’s shopping focuses around the new City Creek Mall, open in March 2012 and The Gateway. Why not top the evening with a National Basketball Association (NBA) Utah Jazz game, time at a local microbrewery or a fine dining establishment for great experiences and wonderful holiday memories.
